Woolbridge Motor Club had a good entry for their Hardy Trial boosted by the large number of Clubman category competitors who were all running in Class 0.

There were seven clean sheets amongst the motorcycles, Brian Wyles coming out top on his GasGas 250 by virtue of his test times.

The National B car category only had 17 starters and it was Stewart Green who took the overall win with the only clean sheet inn his Class 8 Gruffalo. Dave Haizelden was second in his Class Five Reliant Scimitar, dropping three in the grassy field after the deviation out of the gully on Knowle Lane. Continue reading “Hardy Trial”

This years Tamar went down well with competitors with the hills having just the right amount of bite. Most of the sections were pretty dry but Angel Steps greasy.

After a poorly supported Exmoor Clouds entries were better for the Tamar with 24 Motorcycles and 35 Cars, a third in Class Five.

Class Eight had some difficult restarts. Dan Keat was the only class 8 to climb Tanks Terror where Dave Haizelden was the only other car to clean the section. Aaron Haizelden dropped six here. If he hadn’t he would have finished on three, same as Dave but had a faster special test time!

Dave Haizelden dropped the only marks on his Tamar when he stopped at the three on Trehole but even here nobody on four wheels climbed higher.

There were two clean sheets amongst the Solos, the win going to Andrew Kearns on Special Test times.
